Description

Commissioned for the millennium and premiered in 2000, The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace has become one the world’s favorite modern works. Composer Karl Jenkins uses numerous inspirations for his text, including the Muslim call to prayer, the sixteenth-century 'L’Homme armé' Mass tradition, and ancient religious texts. This anti-war work was dedicated to the victims of the Kosovo conflict. This concert is present as a collaboration between the Seattle Choral Company and Brass Band Northwest.
